Fellowship programs

Since 1977, the Institute has offered Annual Fellowships to faculty members at the University of Calgary. Awards are given to support specific research projects and provide the recipient with release from a portion of their teaching obligations. Without such leave time, the scholarly output that is crucial to a university’s mandate would be substantially reduced.

We are grateful to our donors and to the Faculty of Arts for providing this support to our scholars.
